What We Learned In 2021
We want to take a moment to reflect on our blessings and the challenges we are witnessing as we reach the end of 2021, a year that has flown by so fast.

Our mission has always been to ensure that everyone has help facing their legal issues. The need has become more pressing with the rise of unemployment, evictions, family law issues, probate issues, debt, and more.

CARPLS and the legal aid community in Chicago and across Illinois have continued to diligently work together to ease some of the legal fallout for vulnerable community members. CARPLS partnered on new projects, expanded longtime projects and created new pathways for people to find solutions during the pandemic.

We are grateful to our amazing community of support, including donors, staff, funders, organizational partners, and clients.

CARPLS Saves Client From Eviction

Laura said, "Absolutely amazing lawyer. Very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a good lawyer."
